Tips & Advice

Maintain your valuable car safely for a long time with Hyundai scheduled maintenance.

Regular checks you should perform
in between services.

Fluid Checks

Check your oil every couple of weeks and ensure the vehicle is on level ground when doing so.

To ensure greater efficiency of your vehicle, fill oil to the ‘Max” level.

Also check coolant, brake and power steering fluids regularly.

Ensure the washer bottle is filled with an appropriate concentration of screen wash mix. It is always worth checking your wiper blades for signs of cracking and that the wiper jets are correctly aimed.

Tyre Care

Inspect tyres for damage, cuts or excessive wear. At the service station, test pressure with a gauge and adjust if necessary. Also check for missing or loose wheel nuts.

Check your air regularly. 80% of all tyres problems relate to improper inflation, which reduces mileage. Most cars require an inflation level of 28 PSI, varying according to the load that has to be carried.

Ensure your vehicle is aligned correctly as misalignments lead to rapid and uneven tyre wear, and out-of-balance tyres will cause steering vibration.

Rotate tyres as per rotation schedule to get the most out of each set.

When buying new tyres, it’s best to replace all four tyres at once.

Battery Care

The last thing you need is a vehicle that won't start due to a dead battery. Regularly check your battery to ensure that the battery cables are clean from corrosion and the electrolyte levels (battery fluid) are adequate.

Roadside Troubleshootings and Safety Tips

Get your vehicle off the road and away from traffic.

Turn on your hazard lights and raise the hood to warn traffic; signal that you need assistance.

Flat Tyres: Park on a level and solid surface. Apply parking brake and shift manual transmission into ‘Reverse’ or automatic transmission into ‘Park’.

If you decide to change your tyre yourself, follow your vehicles’ specific jacking instructions listed in your owner’s manual.


On extremely hot days, be sure to keep an eye on the temperature gauge. If you’re running hot, make sure to shut off the air conditioner and roll down the windows. If this doesn’t lower the temperature, turn on the heater to get coolant circulating through more of the engine.

If the temperature rises beyond the normal range, stop the vehicle as soon as possible. Continued operation of an overheated engine will cause serious damage, so pull over to a safe place and raise the hood. Be extremely careful of radiator and hoses which may be spraying steam and hot coolant. Never remove the radiator cap when the engine is hot.

If vehicle overheated because of a long hill or from sitting in traffic on a hot day, run the engine at a fast idle (approximately 1,500 rpm) until temperature returns to normal.

If there’s a coolant leak, broken belt or other malfunction, shut off the engine. After the engine cools, check coolant reservoir while engine is running and bring the vehicle to your Hyundai Dealer
